We’re Rich! (In Nature.)
Nicholas D. Kristof, New York Times, September 10, 2011
“The wilderness trims our bravado and puts us in our place. Particularly in traumatic times like these, nature challenges us, revitalizes us, humbles us, exhilarates us and restores our souls. It reminds us that we are part of a larger universe, stewards rather than masters of our world.”
A Well-Regulated Wilderness
Michael Lipsky, New York Times, September 13, 2011
“America is engaged in a great debate on the role of government and the extent of its reach. In the heart of the mountains, far from the roads that would take us back to commerce and competition, we saw that even our beloved refuges were the results of public structures, allowing us the hard-sought illusion that we are beyond their reach.”
